ReasonUser Banned (2 weeks): Ignoring the staff post with regards to hostility and metacommentary; history of hostility
I agree. But i dont think its at all comparable to give people m4a with no stipulations or penalty fines vs the AcA which most people agree isnt anywhere near a perfect solution and has a fair share of problems that make it easier to attack. 8 years of M4A, id wager, would be significantly more difficult to reverse than 8 years of the AcA. And as mentioned, they couldnt even get the votes to roll that back. While I entirely agree that that assessment is generally fair, were talking about a case where the explicitly didnt have the votes for it and she still voted no.So youre having trouble with reading comprehension than because i didnt suggest or say anything of the sort when you quoted me. What part of that post said what you inferred?

He honestly should just be kicked out of the race immediately for this. Like this is disgusting. How aren't people seeing through this? AND I hear hes going to go on the attack next debate which is just what Dems need right now, more in fighting. Its 2016 all over again.
EtcetEraThreadWSJ: Bots target Kamala Harris, racist conspiracy theories during Dem debate
ReasonUser Banned (1 week): off-topic hostility, prior ban for similar behavior.
I already did explain this to you. When the emphasis of the discussion is on Russian bots saying the exact same rhetoric that American people are already using to deflect the actual criticism away, that of systemic racism that was driven by a person's actions in office and the policies supported by that person (who is currently a likely presidential candidate of that party) then youre ignoring the fundamental driving forces that perpetuate racism in the first place, and likely doing so intentionally. This is the PREDOMINANT argument being used surrounding the Harris topic on this forum (that its actually the Russian bots thats the issue, not actually the criticisms of Harris herself). One does nothing to drive systemic racism, the other does.
I never said the Russian bot tweets werent racist so idk why you keep trying to bring that up like I suggested or inferred it.Just so youre aware about that posters history
1. Thinks anyone who brought up drone strikes killing hundreds of thousands of innocent lives by Obama and Hilary wasnt a legitimate criticism
2. Thinks we need to be more understanding of the 94 crime bill, arguably the most harmful piece of legislation to the Black community since emancipation
3. Russian bots are the real problem with the criticism of Harris
4. War crimes against Korea = ok
Among many others. I wouldn't worry about him.

And I never said anything of the sort. Theres a difference between listening to his music, and coming onto a message board, downplaying the evidence, making drive by posts and talking about what a great human being he is. For virtually anything on this board we dont tolerate discussion on people that have sordid histories that aren't even one tenth of the evil this man committed. We dont talk about Colin Moriarty here, we dont talk about Boogie or laymen gaming here (all good things that I agree dont deserve a platform). But a fucking pedophile is allowed to have threads where we continuously defend and downplay his actions and dismiss evidence is totally cool because he had catchy songs and could dance well? Its ridiculous hypocrisy
